Creating opportunities for higher education is a priority for Virginia Relay and our CapTel service provider, Hamilton Relay. The Hamilton Relay Scholarship was established to support students who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind or have difficulty speaking, in their post-secondary education. One $500 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school student in each state where Hamilton is a contracted service provider.
If you know a deserving Virginia high school senior who is deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind or has difficulty speaking, applications for this year’s scholarship are now being accepted. All candidates are required to submit an application, write an essay on the topic of communication technology and provide a letter of recommendation in order to qualify. Applications are available online here.
The deadline to apply is Friday, March 30, and all applications must be postmarked by that date. The scholarship winner will be announced on or before April 30. Any questions about the Hamilton Relay Scholarship Program can be directed to Marta Cagle, the Virginia Relay CapTel Outreach Coordinator.
